In just 14 days my niece will be married. I’m sure she’ll be both happy and relieved once the big day comes as she’s only had a couple of months to plan this wedding.
You see she was going to get married in June, but her fiance joined the Canadian Forces and well … that caused them to need to get married sooner – so that she can join him when he’s in training in another province.
Along with preparing for the Christmas holidays, a dinner at my in-laws, house guests for Christmas and then house guests for the wedding … I still need to find the perfect wedding gift for my niece.
She’s registered at one of our large department stores, but I’m still trying to decide whether to get her something that she still needs from her wedding registry, try to find a unique gifts for her or just give her money so that she and her new husband can purchase whatever they really need or something that they wanted on their registry list that they didn’t receive.
The other reason why I’m considering giving them money as a wedding gift is because they’ll be moving across the country to another province shortly after their wed .. perhaps the less things they have to move the better, right? They they can use the money, as I said above, to get what they need when they settle into their new home.
What would you do? Especially considering the holidays, house guests and a Christmas dinner with the in-laws out of town as well as getting ready for this wedding. LOL
